The Twelve Days of The Variant

We’re spotlighting talent in the cosplay community!

Every month, The Variant showcases cosplayers who display talent, creativity, and a positive voice within the cosplay community.

On the First Day of Christmas The Variant gave to meeeee…

So for the past two years year we’ve asked our Cosplay Spotlights for holiday versions of their cosplays and the results were outstanding! This year we decided to do the same thing but instead of five cosplayers, 12 of our AMAZING Cosplay Spotlights answered the call to bring you all the holiday cheer in the appropriately named feature, The Twelve Days of The Variant!!!!!!
